SPD: 13-year-old arrested in stabbing of stepfather


A 13-year-old has been arrested in connection with the stabbing of his stepfather Thursday morning in Shreveport.

Police were called to a home in the 6300 block of Tinker Street shortly after 9 a.m. Officers arrived to 32-year-old Brad Stephens suffering from multiple stab wounds and a cut on his face. Stephens was taken to University Health in Shreveport.

The teen's mother reportedly called 911 after waking up to the argument between Stephens and the 13-year-old, who allegedly pulled out a knife and attacked Stephens.

Police say the argument was reportedly over the boy not wanting to go to school.

The teen was taken into custody at the scene, and has since been booked into the Caddo Parish Juvenile Detention Center on 1 count of aggravated battery.
